We had a great time riding the speed boat, watching the game in the sports bar and browsing the shops

This is a super place, especially if it is a nice day or evening. It rained the day we were there but we were still able to walk around and see the sights. Worth the visit if you are in the Houston area. Lots of fun things to do and see.

Not much happening on a weekday early evening in late February but parking and walking are free. It's a great place to Galveston Bay water-view watch while enjoying eateries that include bars and buffets. Or grab a coffee or ice cream prior to catching a mini-cruise tour. Depending on the time of your visit, there may be traffic challenges during... More

We headed here on a Sat night because unlimited rides were included in our houston city pass, otherwise we would not have chosen to go here. It was only a few miles from the space center houston but took close to an hour to get to due to all of the traffic. I don't know if was bad timing on... More

Plentiful shops, bars and amusements and a great place to have a Margharita on what was allegedly National Margharita Day whilst watching the boats and yachts sail in and out of the inner harbour (or harbor if you prefer).

Great family time on the rides, food, music and ocean view. Great outdoors activity. You can purchase individual tickets to the rides or get a bracelet for full access.

Kemah Boardwalk has great views,great restaurants,and SOME fun things to do...but it will cost you to play. Most of the attractions are no more than what you'd find at a local carnival,except for their wooden roller coaster The Bullet,which IS a lot of fun!!! Another fun thing to do is to ride the Boardwalk Beast,a beautiful speed boat that goes... More

There are several rides for different age ranges to keep families happy and entertained. A lot of choices for food and also several shops for both souvenir and regular shopping. Worth the stop for the family.
